It's his time
It can't be easy being Baxter Dury. His dad's legacy must follow him at every turn; when he releases a new record, goes to a party, or even when he just nips to the corner shop for a pint of milk. Until now, that is. I commented recently that with his latest release, The Prince of Tears, he's finally Baxter Dury. No longer Baxter Dury, son of Ian. The shoes that once seemed impossible to fill, fit perfectly now.
He goes out on tour in the Spring. Firstly under his own steam, and then opening for Noel Gallagher. I'm gonna try and get along. I think his time has finally come.
Here he is performing Whispered, Pleasure and Palm Trees from his 2014 album It's a Pleasure.
Agreed, 'Prince of Tears' is a terrific piece of work, although I think I prefer the radio edit of 'Miami' - not sweary and consequently far more sinister.ReplyDelete
I've already bagged my ticket for April.
Triffic as I’m sure he himself would describe it.Delete
I have listened to a fair bit of Ian Dury this week as he was my featured artist on Monday. I didn't however know about a son called Baxter, until now. Liked the song and although he is definitely his father's son, glad that you think he is coming out of the shadows.ReplyDelete
He appears to be big in France. I am tempted by the French dates.Delete
